General Surgery

Surgical care is available throughout our region


General surgeons perform a variety of procedures at ThedaCare. In addition to abdominal organs, they operate on blood vessels, skin, breasts, glands and other areas of the body.

Some general surgeons have additional expertise and advanced education and training in areas such as trauma surgery or cancer care. These specialties require high-level skills and experience to perform procedures to treat injuries that affect more than one area of the body.

Like all of our doctors and care providers, general surgeons are part of a closely connected team. They collaborate and coordinate with your primary care doctor and other experts as needed. Whether it’s child-friendly pediatric care, specialized women’s health care or rapid-response to a multiple-injury trauma, the right experts are always at hand.

General surgeons use the latest technology and techniques. Whenever possible, we use sophisticated, minimally invasive approaches that can lessen discomfort and speed healing. These include endoscopic surgery involving computer-guided scopes and robotic-assisted procedures. Techniques like these enable our general surgeons to operate with remarkable skill and precision.

Types of general surgery include:

  • Abdomen
  • Acute care
  • Breast and soft tissue
  • Cancer 
  • Colorectal
  • The endocrine system
  • Gastrointestinal tract
  • Trauma

Whenever possible, our surgeons use less invasive techniques, to minimize discomfort and help you heal faster.  ThedaCare is on the leading edge of innovations with the best equipment, technologies and methods.  Using smaller incisions and advanced technology, our team of surgeons have the expertise to operate using sophisticated Endoscopic, Laparoscopic, Robotic and minimally invasive and computer-guided approaches.
